Oil filters aren't that good for tiny particles compared to a fuel filter.

Not that you'll notice any fuel filter clogging on that amount of oil in the normal lifetime of a diesel filter.

my friends shop run a forklift on a heavy mix of diesel and waste oils, they have to clean it pretty often

but it's still cheaper

i've ran old 2-stroke gas (15% of total fuel) in my wagon, because it wouldn't run in a weedwhacker. Didn't notice anything
If you don't make any mistakes in your life,
life itself will be a f*ckup.

With Volvo to Valhalla and back!
